Amazing that generations ago thought to put this together so we can enjoy it today. A great place to bring a picnic, go for an explore, meet friends or have a birthday. We really enjoyed the children's garden - would be even better on a hot day with the water. You can purchase food and drink but it's rather expensive.... More

Truly one of Melbourne's great features. On a warm fine day with a gentle breeze you can feel you're in paradise wandering in the magnificent gardens in this city. There so many - the Botanical Gardens, the Treasury Gardens, the Fitzroy Gardens, the Flagstaff Gardens - the list goes on. I once ran into some Americans in Darwin of all... More

Melbourne can be very proud of its various gardens that are in and around the city. All are well maintained and provide a break from the traffic and activity of the city. Most do not take time to check them out but they are all worth a visit,

Good place to stroll around and have some quite time. Go there in the evenings and feed the possums. They are mostly tame.

Victoria is known as the Garden State, it's been printed on our car license plates, so it must be true. Victorians love their gardens, not only public gardens, but home gardens. Go to an established suburb anywhere in Victoria and you will see nice gardens. Gardens are found all over the city of Melbourne. Probably the most famous ar the... More

So many great gardens to visit around Melbourne. Too many to list and such little time to see them all. The great thing is they're free! Love this city

The busy city of Melbourne is beautified by gorgeous gardens everywhere. It is possible to walk for miles through beautiful greenery dotted with lakes, statues and flowering plants. That is - if you can drag yourself away from the shops!
